    Tear apart your kindle fire!

    Ok maybe not but here is a real tear down of it. Unsurprisingly it's half battery and half display. I think there are some other things in it but ... seriously how important is that main control board anyhow?

    Only problem if I tried that I would never be able to put it back together

    Was going to apply new thermal paste to my Macbook (it's from 2008, it runs a bit hot). But I gave it up after a while hehe.
    Tag me @Martin and I'll get back to you ASAP

    That's right so let the professionals tear your stuff apart!

    Err... anyhow I noticed that the bulk of the kindle was it's metal frame screen and battery. That control board was tiny!

    Ummm you could have done better with a film or thermal tape. The problem with grease is potentially uneven application and worse yet it has a fixed pot life.

    Such is life huh?

    There are a number of thermal interface material manufacturers. So your mac isn't totally helpless just yet.

    I'd rather use a Kindle ereader for reading, and an iPad for other tasks. Kindle Fire doesn't look appealing at all.
